A slightly less trivial mistake, this one; the sort that makes you want to curl up in a ball and not come out until everyone has gone home. When you’re a kid your mom’s most-used phrase was probably “Where was the last place you put it?”, as she spent all day, every day trying to keep track of your belongings. So, you’d think it would be a funny comment to make when you see a post about losing a person, right?
Well, it might be, but it might also be a hugely inappropriate and flippant comment on someone’s new bereavement. Ouch! I guess he meant well, but this definitely isn’t the response you expect when you post on social media for advice. It’s not always the right time for a joke.
